What's inside the Virginia General Assembly's time capsule
A time capsule buried outside the new General Assembly building this week is stuffed with eclectic lawmaking keepsakes.
What's happening: The box will remain buried indefinitely, officials told the Times-Dispatch.
Here's some of what's inside, per House Clerk Paul Nardo's office:
🧷 Fourteen pins worn by lawmakers, pages and other officials in the Capitol.
🎄 Three Christmas ornaments commemorating the Executive Mansion.
📰 A copy of a Washington Post story about longtime Times-Dispatch photographer Bob Brown.
🐁 One wired computer mouse. (The inventory helpfully describes it as a "tan oval object with wire attached, this was the state of technology during initial use of computers in the General Assembly Building.")
🧪 One sealed Flow Flex COVID-19 Antigen Home Test.
😷 One sealed facemask.
The bottom line: What a time to be alive.
